Hello. I was wondering if there was a low cost method to generate up to around a 30GHz sine or square wave. It would be nice to have it set up where I can easily vary the frequency. So far, it seems like there is a slim to none chance that I'd be able to pull this off without spending thousands on a high frequency function generator. An idea I had was to use a lower frequency generator I have on hand(0.1Hz - 100kHz) and pass it through a series of frequency multipliers, but I havn't found a definitive schematic for one, most say that its got a low frequency range or don't give equations for the resistor and capacitor values involved. If anyone could give me some leads or some circuits, I would much appreciate it.
